This is an excellent recipe for all that leftover Turkey!
After a couple days of eating Turkey sandwiches, pot pies and soup, this is a great new twist to the same old same old. It's quick,easy and delicious. It doesn't taste like your eating Turkey, it tastes like Chinese Fried Rice. My family can't eat this enough, I make it once a week and you can use leftover chicken if you don't have any turkey. I hope you love it as much as we do!

How to Make Turkey Fried Rice

Step-by-Step

  1. Leftover cold rice is always best. But if none, make 4 cups (prepared) of jasmine rice according to package directions.
  2. In a very large skillet or Wok, add peanut oil, butter, and garlic.
  3. Add mushrooms first (since they will absorb the flavors as they cook). Cook for 2 min.
  4. Add onions. Salt & pepper mixture.
  5. Separate mixture to one side of the pan. On the other side add eggs and cook them like scramble eggs.
  6. Once eggs are cooked combine them with rest of mixture in pan.
  7. Add turkey and season with garlic & onion powder. Then add peas. Stir mixture.
  8. Add cooked rice to pan.
  9. Give a few good shakes of soy sauce on rice.
  10. Combine rice with rest of ingredients in pan. Taste and season as needed.
  11. Add green onions and stir once or twice and serve.
  12. Variations: You can add or replace these suggestions. Swap out peas for carrots. Swap out mushrooms for bean sprouts. The trick is to not overload on the items and keep it simple.
